It didnt shoot out cold, it wasn't until it warmed up a lot and had been running it under rpm, and then I turned the heat on, and then it started to pump out some. I never posted a pic of the murky coolant yet, maybe I will later. I'm flushing it with just water.I mean coolant shooting out the radiator cap cold is not good.
Yours just looks a bit rusty to me
Flush it again when you can afford it
Ok I just got a hose adaptor thing that may be able to squeeze into my heater core hose and we'll see if I can blow out some of the mud. I did just drive the car on a short trip for the first time, and it did seem very hot at the front. When I propped up the hood stand it was really really hot. Also the plastic covering that goes over the radiator and a/c condenser was also really really hot. Like it seemed way more hot than normal. During driving I did lose some water due to burping while driving, so I'm thinking it was just some air that got in the system and heated up a lot. Hoping it's not somehting more serious.When I goy my old Jeep the heater was clogged with rust particles. I blew it out with the hose, and it took three times. Full of mud.
Follow the instructions on the bottle and it should help without damaging anything. Adding vinegar or other non car specific stuff can be too harsh or ineffective.I also got some Prestone cleaner, after I try to flush out the heater core some I will drain and do a fresh fill with water and the cleaner. I got 2 so I will drive it a good bit on 1 first and see if my results improve then do the 2nd one shortly after.
Finally got them damn hoses off the pipes. Saw some videos of people dismantling a ton of crap to take the hoses off the core itself and went with the easier route. This is what was missing from my flush, got a ton of gunk out, only had to do each side twice just to be safe. This was probably where I was getting continuous contamination from.When I goy my old Jeep the heater was clogged with rust particles. I blew it out with the hose, and it took three times.

Certainly the flush procedure could have made your heater core leak
Check the HVAC case drain for any wetness from either flush or antifreeze
That's more than I did, I only drove for 10 mins before draining it. I didn't want to let it sit in case too much sat in the new water pump and ate at a seal or something. I think I may just do a few more water flushes and then put some coolant in it to hold the system over. I may do another quick flush in 2 or 3 months. I don't think I'll ever get everything out unless I risk dislodging too much at one time or potentially ruining a seal. I'm sure my car is already 90% better.I chickened out flushing my Jeep. I only left thr stuff in there for a half hour or less. I let the water do the work.
